On September 29, 2012, at approximately 1:15 p.m., Juan Cervantes contacted the Camarillo Police Department to file a stolen bicycle report. Later that day, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Cervantes observed a 17 year-old male riding the bicycle in the area of Lomita Street and Fulton Street, Camarillo. Cervantes demanded the return of his bicycle as he ran after the juvenile to the 200 block of N. Glenn Drive. At that location, a brief verbal confrontation ensued before the juvenile, a documented gang member, inexplicably returned the bicycle to Cervantes.
Immediately thereafter, several additional unidentified males assisted the juvenile with physically attacking Cervantes. The suspects eventually fled the area, leaving the severely beaten Cervantes with his bicycle in the street. Cervantes sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he was treated and released. The juvenile was arrested later that evening for battery causing serious bodily injury, receiving stolen property, and street terrorism. He was lodged at the Juvenile Justice Center.
The Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail is conducting an active investigation into this matter. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Deputy Francisco Jauregui at (805) 947-8319.
